NYIT student ambassadors and staff made freshman feel right at home at the annual Welcome Day which was held on September 4th, the day before classes began. Among the activities taking place were icebreaker games that helped new students meet fellow classmates and make new friends. Various student leaders and staff members advised them to take advantage of all the wonderful resources the school offers. The Office of Career Services and Student Solutions Center are two hot spots definitely worth checking out!

On the first day of school, a group of nervous freshman exchanged schedules. They all had one thing in common; prerequisites.  Professor Baron enthusiastically teaches FCWR-101, the first course of the require core curriculum for English which and changed freshman’s views on the class. “Writers aren’t born; you can learn to be a writer. Everyone is different, and writing has different ways to express who you are.” The first assignment is to bring in a piece of writing that you love. Students eagerly called out different types of writing, such as poetry, lyrics and book excerpts. Can’t wait for the next class!

Freshman need to know their strengths. As the semester progresses here are a few questions to keep in mind. What are you good at? What makes you happy? What can you see yourself doing in the future? This is the first step in understanding what your college experience is going to be like.  NYIT President Edward Guiliano, Ph.D., told new freshman in his welcome speech the following, “An NYIT ID card is your ticket to the global interconnectivity that is this university. Everything you could possibly need here at NYIT is at your fingertips. Good luck!”
